Bjørn Jepsen - WeFocus

In this episode Bjørn is guested by Jeremy Heath, HSE Mental Focus Specialist, Senior Risk Consultant, HUB International.

In this episode Jeremy shares his powerful story and covers a broad range of interesting and inspiring topics! 

For example, why don't we s HSE professionals not necessarily always see the good that we do? And why is it important to remind ourselves of the good changes and impacts we have on the field and people's lives in general. Jeremy here uses a personal story to frame how somebody he worked together with years ago still remembers some of the knowledge he shared with them 10 years ago.

Moreover, Jeremy shares how understanding the importance of  having a strong communication with both the workers/employees and the management team is the key element in order to succeed. 

Regarding the management team, his mentor specifically told him that you need to make a seat at the table! The important question to ask is then: How can we communicate to the management team in a way where safety becomes important to them?

Regarding the workers/employees: What do you do when you are facing an accident or an incident simply because people are not paying attention? Do you just ask them to pay more attention? 

This is one of the most inspiring guest speakers we have had on our podcast so far. Listen to the episode and I promise you, you won't be disapointed!
